Due to the great demand for tickets last year, the Online Marketing Rockstars are looking for a larger venue in 2016. 10,000 visitors they expect in February – and 2016’s venue is a real challenge.
Launched at St Pauli’s Millerntor Stadium in 2015, the festival will be transferring to the Hamburg fair grounds in 2016. “The interest is so great that we need this larger venue. We have already so many ideas on exciting things to happen over the two days”, said Jasper Ramm, Head of Business Development of the ramp 106 GmbH in an interview with Hamburg News.
To turn the sober exhibition halls into a cool location, conventional chairs will be replaced by plush sofas, and groovy surprises will also be part of the agenda. “In 2016, there will be a sponsor providing a self-driving car.”
The concept of professional speakers in a relaxed atmosphere, coupled with new aspects of digital and marketing industry, has proven successful and will thus be hosted for the sixth time on 25 and 26 February in Hamburg. “The Online Marketing Rockstars represent new faces and practical trends – not suited for a dusty conference atmosphere”, said Philipp Westermann Meyer, founder of the event and online entrepreneurs.
Prominent speakers will include Tony Hawk. The “probably the most famous professional skateboarder in the world” will roll on his board on the stage and tell how he has evolved into a globally successful brand. The Californian will tell you how to marketing can create a global with three ingredients: a talent, a community, and an arcane niche.
